Well, obviously I failed to make goals about TV viewing, because I can't decide if I want to watch the Dancing With the Stars results show or the opening ceremonies at the Olympics. What to do, what to do?
I also interrupted my research to read "Spook: Science tackles the Afterlife" by Mary Roach, an absolutely hilarious look at reincarnation, bizarre 19th century soul-weighing machines, ectoplasm, etc. One thing that has me rather worried is a near-death experience report that heaven is occupied by "people of all different nationalities, all working on their arts and crafts." An "it's a small world" ride with glue guns and styrofoam cones? No, thanks. :)
I've also been reading books I'm meant to be judging for the Ritas. I can't say what they are, of course, but I haven't read so many romances in a row in a long time, and now I'm discovering why. I don't want to be "burned out" on romance (either reading or writing!), but maybe I've just been at it too long. In the meantime, the book I just started is pretty good, so maybe my curmudgeonly days are ending! :)
Enough rambling for now. I have to see who the first "saved" couple is on DWTS tonight.
